We are so focused on telling and reminding you how you’re not good enough, skinny enough, organic enough, mom-enough, anything enough, instead of telling you how freaking amazing you are. We are so busy selling you disgusting cracks, pills, shakes, and wraps to instantly “change” and “improve” you, instead of actually showing you sustainable, safe ways to further enhance your life or show you how to appreciate the strengths you do have. I’m sorry for that. I’m sorry we think it’s okay to fat or skinny shame you, or really shame you however helps us sell you more bogus products. I’m sorry most of the time you’re buying into a promise of a quick-fix, and support…*
*when they feel like supporting you or need to make their quota
…instead of actually helping you find a tribe of similar people to hold you accountable and cheer you on. I’m sorry my industry is more concerned with your bikini body and thigh gap than your incredible soul and talents. I’m sorry my industry finds it acceptable to Photoshop and pose the heck out of everything to a point no human ever feels good enough.
Because you ARE good enough. That’s why I’m in this industry. Because you really, truly are good enough. You deserve an amazing, healthy, positive, supported life. You deserve to have a comrade helping you find a healthy path that works for you. You deserve real, long-term goals and steps to get there. You deserve more than what my industry is selling you.
Don’t give up.
